Tour description provided by Viator

See the world's largest collection of Impressionist art on a skip-the-line tour of the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. Your two-hour small-group guided tour takes in masterpieces from renowned artists, including Van Gogh and Monet, that are housed in the stunning Orsay museum building -- a former Beaux-Arts railway station.

Numbers are limited to 25 people on this small-group walking tour, ensuring you'll receive personalized attention from your guide. And by booking your skip-the-line ticket in advance, you won't waste any time waiting in line!

Not only is the Musée d'Orsay the most visited Paris museum, it also boasts the world's largest collection of Impressionist artwork, showcasing an inspiring display of colorful paintings and sculptures that date back to the 1840s. As testament to its popularity, the Musée d'Orsay often has queues that can easily exceed an hour, so your fast-track skip-the-line ticket ensures you'll have the quickest entry to this incredible museum.

With a guaranteed small group (maximum 25 people), you'll enjoy a two-hour Musée d'Orsay tour with personalized attention from your expert guide. Learn how the Parisian art movement changed the landscape of art for followers around the world, and see famous masterpieces by Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Degas and more.

The architecture of the Orsay building itself is equally impressive, having originally been built as a grand train station (Gare d'Orsay) for the 1900 Universal Exhibit, a world fair that celebrated the achievements of the past century. While exploring the building with your expert guide, you'll marvel at its ornate walls and the stunning vaulted roof that frames the intriguing artwork within.
